When building mod_perl, the mod_perl C source files that have to be compiled into the httpd executable usually are copied to the subdirectory src/modules/perl/ in the Apache source tree. In the past, to integrate this subtree into the Apache build process, a lot of adjustments were done by mod_perl's Makefile.PL. Makefile.PL was also responsible for the Apache build process.
This approach is problematic in several ways. It is very restrictive and not very clean, because it assumes that mod_perl is the only third-party module that has to be integrated into Apache.
A new hybrid build environment was therefore created for the Apache side of mod_perl, to avoid these problems. It prepares only the src/modules/perl/ subtree inside the Apache source tree, without adjusting or editing anything else. This way, no conflicts can occur. Instead, mod_perl is activated later (via APACI calls when the Apache source tree is configured), and then it configures itself.
There are various ways to build Apache with the new hybrid build environment (using USE_APACI=1):
Build Apache and mod_perl together, using the default configuration.
Build Apache and mod_perl separately, allowing you to plug in other third-party Apache modules as needed.
Build mod_perl as a DSO inside the Apache source tree using APACI.
Build mod_perl as a DSO outside the Apache source tree with APXS.
